Swimming with Seals for Two in Oban, Scotland
Swim with seals off the Scottish coast with this exciting wildlife excursion for two. Starting from the beautiful coastal town of Oban, this tour is ideal for beginners and experienced water-lovers alike. Take the boat with our team of experts and head towards a large seal colony of grey and harbour/ common seals and find out how friendly these creatures are. You can hire wetsuits from us that will keep you warm in the water as the seals zoom around, eager to play. The water is some of the clearest in Scotland and only a few metres deep, so there's no need for heavy dive gear! It's an amazing opportunity to get up-close with these playful creatures and there's even more wildlife to spot on the journey there and back, including dolphins, whales, basking sharks, seabirds and eagles.
